2:09pm
some of their soldiers, typically called afghan hands, have great respect. i can't go too far and say there is a target on everybody's back. >> susan kelly is joining us now, tracking this story since it first broke. this is getting really complicated. what is the latest on this e-mail investigation and how it led to petraeus stepping down, suzanne. >> reporter: well, as you just mentioned we know now from a u.s. official, that the woman complained that paula broadwell, sending harassing e-mails, that prompted the investigation. we also know from that source that the investigation led to discoveries of e-mails between broadwell and petraeus that implicated the affair. more details are coming out about the time line of events, and when u.s. officials were

limb palestinians in gaza say there was wounds from an artillery attack. medics say tank shells hit the area, wounding at least 24. the firing happened in galvesza after a tank shell hit the area. and as cnn's ivan watson shows us, turks are afraid they could be dragged into this brutal war. >> reporter: the war in syria is spilling across the border into turkey, the nervous turkey
2:15pm
soldiers worry as it continues between the government troops. here, armed syria rebels operate just a few hundred yards away from turkish guards, hundreds fleeing to turkey. more than 8,000 refugees entered the area, they say, in a single day. we're carefully monitoring the situation, the official tells the journalists. there were two more wounded today. it is easy to see how this happened when you look at the map. residents describe the syria town as basically one city, divided only by a fence. the rebels launched an attack to capture the syria side of the border, early this morning, firing rockets and battling street to street.
2:16pm

2:20pm
so if you're like a lot of people who follow the news, general david petraeus's resignation, and admitted that he cheated on his wife was a total shock. the general was known for demanding the highest standards for himself and his soldiers.
2:21pm
first, the obvious question, he had it all, a great family and career, why risk everything? he had to know he would get caught eventually, right? >> no, studies show that when men get a huge increase with testosterone, that comes from winning the super bowl, or war even, can raise testosterone levels, then men tend to rationalize cheating better. the higher testosterone means higher sexual arouseal, and then their thinking starts to get a little blurred about what the subseque consequences may be. >> so if we're built that way, are we fighting the way we're built? >> absolutely not, you know, thankfully, don, most men -- have women in their culture, too, and women have a whole different agenda, and help to
2:22pm
keep men straight in many ways. if your hunter-gatherer went off, then your lack of protection could be at risk. so it is really in our blood stream to really look at the cheating. we had an american president who supposedly was having an affair with a major movie star. and the boy's club, press club, it was not reported. >> when it was happening, i was on an airplane, and people were watching. and the guy next to me, we said listen, having an affair is definitely not right, it is wrong. but to resign over it? it happens all the time. people have affairs every single day, and people who are in positions of power. >> and if you have ever seen a james bond movie, it can be a threat to national security. it can. because as soon as you have these alliances, and private

confidential, high security information could be transferring on the pillow, you know it is a danger zone. but the main thing that happened here, the press corp is made up of a lot of women. major journalists are flooded with women, because we happen to be good communicators. >> so you said if it were the women? >> yes, you can blame the women in the media or those wonderful men who really respect their wives, or maybe the wonderful men in the media who are jealous of him. but also, look at how he was busted, the woman who he supposedly was having an affair with, there was enough to harass her, he has women who are coming out everywhere, and my gosh, the cross fire. >> can men ever win? >> yes, they can, you get married, pay your bills, stay true. straight ahead, an

2:28pm
taken out of here and sent to landfalls in pennsylvania, new jersey, and determined by fema. >> fema says more than $400 million in assistance has already been approved for storm victims. and a 4.23 quake rattles kentucky this morning, centered eight miles from whitesburg, kentucky. they're not uncommon here, but others felt shaking, some more than 300 miles away. and it took some days, but we have a winner in florida, president obama won in florida based on projections before today's noon deadline. and we're learning today that an e-mail investigation sparked the surprise resignation of director david petraeus. sources say the affair came to light because the fbi looked into a complaint that the biographer, paula broadwell, was
2:29pm
sending harassing e-mails to another woman. tom, it is good to see you. wish it was a better story that we were talking about. but why would the fbi investigate the cia e-mails? why is this something the agency would handle internally? >> because the fbi has jurisdiction if someone uses the internet to threaten another person. so that is where the investigation began. it was not against director petraeus. it was because threats were being received over the internet. and since they're coming into someone working at cia headquarters, and particularly in the executive area, that prompted the fbi to go ahead and investigate the threat. >> okay, so the big concern here, then, that an outsider could have access, quite simply, to sensitive information and intelligence? >> well, that is the concern when it starts. but when you look into that, in the cia or fbi headquarters or any of the intel agencies, often
2:30pm
you have dual computer systems so that you can receive outside e-mails because someone might send a complaint over the public internet service providers. and then of course, you have the classified e-mail systems internally, and they're completely separate. but the fact that somebody is receiving a threat at that level, they have to investigate and look at the nature of the threat and look at the person making the threats and start to subpoena that person's records to see if they're threatening other officials or if there is more to the story, who they're connected with. during that subsequent part of of the investigation, that is where they determined the connection between the other woman and general petraeus. >> is there anyone here at risk of criminal prosecution? >> from what i'm hearing, no, that the fbi investigation was winding down. they had determined that there had not been a security breach. and that there had been no indication of a criminal violation on the part of director petraeus, or someone from his staff.
2:31pm
and basically, that it was an administrative matter in terms of whether he is using government computers, government-owned computers to send e-mails and receive e-mails, or you know, the nature of that. but that no, there was going to be no prosecution. >> okay, can we talk a little bit more about -- i asked you why one agency would be investigated over the other. but what are the relationships like between the cia and the fbi? do they work well together? >> yes, they do work well together, and the fbi, it is going to be common if there is investigations, whether somebody is working at the pentagon or the white house, they're going to investigate. if you look back over the last 20 years, for example, you see the fbi heavily involved in very controversial investigations, whether it was allegations, whether it was travel-gate during the clinton administration, or investigations -- for instance, the leaking of the identity of valerie plame during the push
2:32pm
administration. you have the fbi conducting these sensitive investigations, whether it is corruption allegations or threats or other things, it is very common. >> tom, there is -- sometimes there is chest thumping going on between agencies, with local officials, police agencies or the fbi. or you will have county and city officials. there is nothing like that going on between the cia and the fbi, especially in an investigation this big? >> no, not in that kind of matter. the cia officials recognize that the fbi has to do its job. and in a case like this, they would ask for the fbi to come in if one of their own is receiving threats from an outside person by internet, they would want the fbi to look at it and see if there was any possibility of prosecuting. that really there was an unintended consequence of this leading to director petraeus. >> and the fbi director would have been inform? >> they have very strict proc s
2:33pm
processes, if they uncovered criminal violations, or a breach that would have immediately been sent up the chain and could include the president. but the fact that these violations go on, and include a lot of people. and as long as no violations were revealed and no security breaches were revealed, it would be part of the protocol to not send it up until the investigation, because it could really damage somebody. because if the allegations proved to be unfounded the damage is already done if it is public that they were under investigation. so they really want to have the opportunity to maintain the integrity of the investigation, and not have it be in the public arena, highly politicalized as this one has become, even after the fact. >> and tom, i have to run, but just simply, do you think he should have resigned? >> that was a personal decision he made. he was not being forced to.
2:34pm
he submitted the resignation, and the report was the president wanted to think about it overnight. the fact that he had not violated the law, and apparently a security breach had not been uncovered, it was really left for him at the moment, at least. it was really up to him to decide and he just decided to take the step immediately and go ahead and resign. >> tom fuentes, thank you. >> you're welcome, don. still ahead, a prominent texas attorney charged with doing business with a drug cartel. first, this. the obama administration's health care program is about to go into effect, but not all at once. certain provisions get enacted at certain dates. cnn's christine romans has a look. >> reporter: the battle over health reform is over. the supreme court has ruled and now the president has been reelected. the centerpiece of the legislation, where everyone has
2:35pm
to have health insurance or pay a penalty, doesn't go into effect until 2014. but certain key pieces go into effect next year. first, if you're a big earner, your taxes go up. meaning an individual making $250,000 will pay $450 more a year into medicare. a family earning half a million will pay $250 more. on top of that, high income families may also be subject to a new 3.8% medicare tax on investment income. that is high-earning families. next, if you contribute to a flexible spending account, the maximum amount you can set aside is $2500. so if you're in the middle of open enrollment now, please, plan accordingly. finally, a lot is happening to get state insurance up and running. this is where you go to buy a plan, enrollment starts in

former congresswoman gabrielle giffords stood in an arizona courtroom this week and faced the man who tried to assassinate her. her husband, mark kelly, stood by her side as he addressed jared loughner. mr. loughner, you may have put a bullet through her head but you haven't put a dent in her spirit and her commitment to make the world a better place. and despite the dramatic
2:40pm
appearance of gabrielle giffords and her husband, nine others testified at the hearing, including congressman ron barber. he won a special election to fill her seat after she stepped down. >> i turned to mr. loughner and said i hold no hatred for you, but i am very, very angry and sick at heart about what you did and the hurt you have imposed on all of us. i told him that he must now live with this burden, and will never see the outside of a prison again. >> loughner was sentenced to serve the rest of his life in prison without the possibility of parole. a prominent texas attorney, facing charges of laundering more than $600 million for a mexican drug cartel. he is a former board member for the el paso symphony orchestra.
2:41pm
what do we know about this del gado person? >> as you said, he was very active in his community, donated money, also started his own scholarship fund for the advancement of latino students who want to major in public policy and administration. and now, you know, we hear that there is another side. we hear he is a really nice guy. but perhaps the allegations are that he has laundered $600 million for a drug cartel. >> well, his lawyer, obviously, says he is innocent. he says he is innocent. he will have to spend 20 years -- what? >> well, the max is 60 years, they will take into account, has he had a prior history. >> well, the question is, will he pay the money back? >> well, this was not a

restitution where he stole money, he laundered, it was not as if he was out there stealing legitimate money from a businessman, he is accused of taking the money from a drug cartel, who got it through illicit businesses, and sort of clean it, hence, the term laundering money. and charges behind this decision, regarding bernie fine. >> what he said was after our investigation, first of all, the two stepbrothers who came forward, the statute of limitations, not that it didn't happen, the second one said guess what? i lied, the federal government as a result said we just don't have enough to prosecute him.
2:43pm
we don't have enough victims to fall within the statute. and don't find enough evidence, because a lot of times what the feds do, the state prosecutor may say i'll roll the dice, and put it in front of the jury. the federal government is a little different, they're more interested in the resources they're spending and does it make sense to push forward if they don't think they could get a conviction out of it? >> so no recourse, can he get a job back because of it? >> i don't think so, because again, this is not a statement, they're just saying we don't think we have enough to convict you. which is a very brave statement, i have to hand it to the federal prosecutors. because the emotions are high in light of what happened to sandusky. they could have just whipped into a frenzy, and emotions were high. it is a bold decision, to them it is about law and order. >> holly, thank you. >> absolutely, always good to
